[development] Getting SVN to deal with orphaned and new files

Wow; with drush, as Larry hinted, no need to use CVS versions anymore unless
you've hacked the module. Goodbye cvs_deploy module and lots of CVS files
getting committed to SVN.
But here is my question. Can anyone confirm that what I just described is
not so with Drupal core. Though Drush can download a fresh non CVS install
of Drupal, It isn't able to upgrade Drupal core. So it seems like it still
makes sense to not use Drush for downloading Drupal core, but stick to CVS
for ease of upgrade. Can anyone confirm that is correct?
